that seems like progress. and progress sometimes happens in concrete ways. in ways that you can see when presidents are willing to go places that presidents have never gone before. willing to go places that presidents have never gone before. "first look" is up next. right now on "first look" on this thanksgiving eve, secretary of state hillary clinton is zigzagging across the middle east seeking a truce to prevent an israeli ground war. late last night boxing great hector macho camacho is shot while sitting in his car. and on the busiest travel day of the year we'll take you to turkey town u.s.a. good morning, i'm lynn berry we begin with the crisis in the mideast. secretary of state hillary clinton is negotiating right at this moment in an attempt to work out a truce to stop the violence in israel and gaza. we go live to amin live on the phone from gaza.
2:01am
what is the morning there? >> reporter: we have been out and about today in gaza, surveying some of the damage overnight from the israeli air strikes. from one site we visited it was completely reduced to rubble. israel claimed this was a hamas terrorist hub. locals say it was a government building that provides basic services for the residents in that area. we had a chance to visit one of the u.n. schools where thousands of palestinians now are being internally displaced. many of these people are leaving their homes on the eastern part of gaza, going to the u.n. schools and taking up refuge. the u.n. is struggling to cope with the influx of people. it's a dire situation for the residents of the hamas strip. all of this on the back drop of more talks. hillary clinton will be flying to cairo where she will meet egypt's president. many hoped a truce would go into effect last night.
2:02am
it did not. gaza felt like a war zone throughout the evening. a lot is riding on the secretary's visit. >> ayman mohyeldin, thank you very much. we want to go to the mayor of jerusalem. he joins us live from jerusalem over the phone. we want to thank you for the time joining us. we just mentioned the secretary of stated spending there with prime minister netanyahu in jerusalem yet, working to broker some kind of a deal, a cease-fire. how confident are you that this can even happen? >> it's very clear that it's short-term since the leadership of the hamas believes, like osama bin laden and al qaeda in death and destruction and their charter is to destroy israel. it's difficult to broker a deal with somebody that wants to kill you and they're not changing their charter.
2:03am
the challenge here is how do we make sure the hamas leadership understands that their motivation should be zero, very negative motivation to try and shoot indiscriminate fire on israeli civilians. >> so how far are you prepared to go? if you're saying a cease-fire can't be agreed on if their motivation is anything but zero, how far are you prepared to go and are you prepared for the repercussions based on those actions? >> the idea is, unlike hamas who are trying to kill civilians, we are focused on targeting the leadership. i hope and believe the residents, citizens of gaza will go back to their leaders and say do us a favor, stop shooting israel. we are need to broker maybe a deal, have some quiet. israel is interested in this. i'm sure most residents in gaza are interested. leaders of hamas have to make sure they're not violent against israel. it's a challenge. based on this violence, can you
2:04am
describe what this crisis has been like for the people in your city? we read about accounts of sirens going off, children in school terrified, hundreds seeking shelter. can you describe what it's like? >> of course it's not good to hear the sirens going off. everyone in jerusalem and the rest of the country, especially the south and center are well-trained to deal with the situation. what we do, we do to safe zones around us, wait a few minutes, go back home to normal life. jerusalem has not been hit. life here is normal. as much as possible. we are continuing our routine. have not canceled any events. we are ready for the situation. we are giving the prime minister and israeli army the breath they need to deal with the situation. we had enough and we must stock market this indiscriminate fire. israeli government and the israeli security forces have
2:05am
full support by myself and the people of jerusalem and i'm sure the rest of the country. >> nir barkat, mayor of jerusalem, thank you very much for your time. >> thank you so much. well, back here at home, one person is now in police custody after the deadly house explosion in indianapolis earlier this month. this is according to our nbc affiliate wthr. officials will only say there have been no arrests and the investigation continues. search warrants were served on tuesday and law enforcement sources tell the indianapolis star they now suspect gas was intentionally released into the home and may have been sparked with a remote device. well, former boxing champion hector macho camacho is in serious condition after being shot and wounded last night in puerto rico. camacho was shot in the head and neck while sitting in a car and was rushed to the hospital. doctors say the bullet struck camacho in the jaw but exited his head and lodged in his shoulder. he is expected to survive.
2:06am
during his long career he held three world championships and defeated such great fighters as sugar ray leonard. fans of elmo and "sesame street" around the world are hearing about the real life details surrounding the man behind that beloved character. for 28 years kevin clash was not only the voice of elmo, he was also the driving force that helped propel the furry red monster into a global favorite. late yesterday clash resigned from "sesame street" as he was slapped with a multi-million lawsuit claiming he had a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old boy a decade ago. clash issued a statement saying he hopes to resolve his personal matters privately. now for a look at your national weather and this being the busiest travel day of the year, he's a popular man for us, nbc meteorologist bill karins. >> maybe. >> shifted a bit from yesterday. >> the fog more problematic in the middle of the country. we knew we would have the rain in the west coast. that fog, it's yet to be seen
2:07am
how bad it will be. let's show you the heavy rain. three days in a row, each morning this time we have shown heavy rain. i-5 not a fun drive, 80 and 84 snowy. seattle and portland, some minor concerns there. san francisco dealing with rain showers on and off. i don't expect sacramento and san francisco to have major issues with the airlines today. the middle of the country, doesn't look like a lot, no rain, snow or ice, but dense fog. the air is not moving much. there's enough moisture out there. the fog has settled in. everywhere in the gray is under a dense fog advisory and the houston area has some dense fog. it's from the st. louis area, indianapolis, up to chicago, milwaukee, green bay, this is where it's kind of thick out there. the pea soup they like to call it. take some extra time. it will be difficult on the roads and the airports until the
2:08am
sun can burn it off. this time of year, the sun angle is low so it may take a while. st. louis reporting a tenth of a mile visibility. that's dangerous. green bay is at one mile of visibility. one mile is okay, but a half mile to a quarter mile, it's difficult to drive on the highways. forecast for today, we have the morning fog in this area until 10:00 or 11 clo 11:00, then the will burn things off and it will be beautiful out. it should get better as the afternoon continues. east coast looks beautiful. thanksgiving day, not many concerns travel-wise out there. few showers late in the day, possible chicago, st. louis, also down to oklahoma. my biggest concern is what is it going to be for the airlines this morning, especially o'hare, one of the busiest in the country and the world during the
